Join artist Deborah Manson for part two of a stimulating yearlong textile art course which will introduce you to experimental and creative approaches to making textile art, inspired by ancient and modern art and craft processes.
You will be supported with your individual textile practice throughout by 1-2-1 support, group workshops, an online notice board (Padlet) and WhatsApp group.
The full course will be delivered over three terms (8 weeks per term), each with a different theme. The three terms are independent and there is no obligation to sign up for all three.
Part 2 – Botanical print
In part 2 the focus will be on natural approaches to print. You will learn how to make botanical printing pastes from plant extracts, foraged and waste plant materials. You’ll print onto paper and cloth using paper stencil screen printing techniques experimenting with shape, pattern and overprint. You’ll also experiment with contact print bundle dyeing. You will record your processes through samples and document your journey in a sketchbook.
Most materials are supplied although students will need to bring the following materials along:

Deborah Manson is an artist and maker based in East Sussex. Her practice is studio based and incorporates collage, drawing, print and textiles - including growing and processing her own natural dyes. Her aesthetic - lo-fi, handmade, imperfect, incorporating inexpensive paper, re purposed textiles and natural dye – evolves from her interest in age old craft techniques and the cross overs between art and craft. Her work is informed by the belief that artists have a responsibility to make conscious decisions about materials, approaches to making and their impact on the environment. Deborah studied Visual Communication at Central at Central St Martins and went on to work as a designer and teacher. In 2016 she gained her MA in textiles from Chelsea college of art.
